Vol. 1: 5 Things to Do After Harvest
Congratulations. Harvest is finally over (well, hopefully). While every year is grueling and gritty, this year took it to a whole new level. The rain. The snow. The tariffs. The hits just kept on coming. But with vim and vigor, you kept on going. And we applaud that.
So now that harvesting is all wrapped up, what to do next? Try these 5 ideas.
Harvest is hard. If a 12-hour+ workday 7 days a week in the bitter cold doesn’t call for some R&R time, we don’t know what does. So go ahead and treat yourself. Crack open a brew or two. Put on some tunes. Find your spot on the couch and buy some extra batteries for your remote—you might be there a while. Kick back and do nothing for a few days. You deserve it.
Someone with your work ethic can’t sit in relaxation forever. That’s simply not how you operate. Put productivity back in the driver’s seat by doing some preventative maintenance. On your combines, clean every belt, bearing and chain and make them spick and span for next year. Clean your other equipment while you’re at it. Wash and blow off your sprayers, tractors, planters and seed treaters before it gets too cold, and replace parts if necessary. To help, download our handy Preventative Maintenance Checklist. Sure, it’s miserable. But some grunt work now will avoid future headaches during busier parts of the year.
